Kamome shokudo



Finnish seagulls

are enormous.

Their fat bodies

waddle along the wharf.

They remind me of a cat

I had as a young girl.

Nanao, the cat,

weighed 10.2kg.

She wasn't tame and

was always getting into fights.

Everyone hated her.

She only showed affection to me,

she let me pat her belly.

She used to purr.

I really loved Nanao.

I used to feed her without

telling Mom.

She ended up so fat

that she died.

A year later

Mom was hit and killed by a truck.

I loved her very much.

But strangely, I cried more

for Nanao than I did for Mom.

I don't think that's because Dad,

a martial artist,

always told me never to cry

in front of others.

I really like fat animals.

I love the way they devour

their food so contentedly.

My mother was very skinny.

Seagull Diner

She's been here

a month now.

I've never seen

any customers.

So tiny.

Is she a child or an adult?

I'll bet she's still a child.

She could be one of

those tiny adults.

It's more a "Child's Diner",

than the "Seagull Diner."




Coffee, please.



You speak good Japanese.

That's Nyarome, the cat?

You like Nyarome?

Yes, I do.

Who is it, who is it, who...

Do you like "Gatchaman?"


that cartoon.

Who is it, who is it, who is it

Do you know the lyrics?

All of them?

Wait a moment please.

Who is it, who is it, who is it...

Who is it?

Who is it?

No need to pay.

You're the very first

customer I've had.

So your coffee is free.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Who is it, who is it, who...

"Moominsummer Madness"

Excuse me.

Do you know the

Gatchaman song?

What was that?


Certainly, I know it.

Could you please teach me?

Well, yes.

Who is it, who is it, who is it

A shadow dancing

in the sky

The great white wings of


Taking a leap,

on faith,

Faith in the science

behind the firebird

Fly, fly, fly, Gatchaman

Go, go, go, Gatchaman

The Earth is all alone,

the Earth is alone

0hh, Gatchaman, Gatchaman



That's perfect.

My brother loved that cartoon,

we watched it together.

I'm so lucky.

That song kept repeating in

my head a million times.

But why that one?

I run a diner here in town.

Some kid asked me

for the lyrics the song.

I just couldn't remember them.

What a relief that is.

It's like finally scratching

that itchy spot.

- Thank you so much.

- Not at all.

So you run a diner here?

Yes, I do.

With your husband?


By yourself?


That's great.

It's just a tiny little place.

Are you a tourist?


Business trip?

No, not really.

Come to see the trolls?

Not at all.

A stab in the dark.

Stab in the dark?

Yes, that's it.

I wanted to go somewhere

far away.

I spread a world map and

closed my eyes...

Then I stabbed my finger

and I hit Finland.

I got here yesterday.

That's why I'm here now.

That's amazing.

- Not really.

- A very rare case.

You think so?

I have a question.

If you'd pointed at Alaska,

would you have gone there?


If Tahiti,

would you have traveled there?

Of course.

I see.

But I really had to do it.

There was no other choice.

When you're determined,

there is no choice.

I felt the same way.

So you came?

Yes, and here I am.

So, welcome to Finland.

I've tentatively booked a hotel

for a week.

But I don't know what to do.

I walked around

and found this book store.

So I came in.

How long will you stay?

I haven't decided yet.


As a token of

my thanks to you,

you're welcome to

stay at my place.


That was a good bath.


The Land of the

Midnight Sun.
